*Previously Featured, reached #3* Inspired by her father, 16-year-old Ruby never misses an opportunity to challenge her village's ridiculous rules. Her friends and brothers try to dissuade her hot-headed methods, but Ruby can't help it. She doesn't believe Seers should determine the fate of individuals before a crime is committed, and she doesn't back down, not even when the Seers banish her father into the deadly forest.
 
When Ruby spots survivors beyond the gates, she breaks every rule to save them. She lands the same fate as her father, only to be saved by a psychic instead of banished. But why would a Seer protect a troublesome girl? 

With the village out to get her, Ruby pulls one last stunt that destroys the lives of everyone she has ever known, and to her horror, Ruby learns the dark and twisted truth behind why the psychic saved her.

Wow, I wish I was creative enough to come up with a storyline this brilliant!!! I LOVE THIS ALREADY!

                              Is it bad that part of the reason it caught my eyes is that my name is Ruby

Is it bad that I'm taking immense pleasure from the fact that the main character is named ruby and so is part of my username?

Didn't she go through to the side her father was on? Confused
